it's keeping the economy down. but won't getting rid of it just push the economy down even more? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears and let's get right to it. the bulls and bears this week, gary b smith, jonas max ferris and along with todd schoenburger. >> gary get rid of the debt ceiling best or worst thing for the economy? >> it's absolutely the worst thing, brenda. the left likes to say, well, you know, ronald reagan raised the debt limit 18 times, george bush raised it 7 times, bill clinton raised it 8 times. so, you know, both sides do it so it must be okay, and from the perspective of fair and balanced, it has to stop no matter who is president. we go through the same cycle, we raise the debt limit, spend more,en go out and borrow more, and raise the debt limit again and it looks like it's unstoppable, but this is the check and balance of how to govern our society. we can't afford the bills we have now to pay. someone has to say, no, spend what you have and let's move on. >> brenda: you know, it doesn't really mean anything. why not get rid of it. it's
's happening in the political world and the economy which we're in. the situation with the gun violence is very close to home, because i do enjoy -- even though i'm 60, i still go out and hunt and shoot a deer and kill a turkey to eat. host: thank you very much. by the way, the full presentation by the president yesterday, you can certainly watch atlanta cspan.org. good morning, what kind of work do you do? caller: i'm in the mental health field. each level of the patients have had different mental health issues. and i have really been waiting for this issue to come up, because that's what concerns me the most. i have worked with people that have multiple personalities. we have been scared to death. they pick beds up. they have tremendous anger in there. i don't think they get the proper care that they need. and after a while, they're released and that is something that i'm really concerned with. it's not about who is able to get a gun, who is able to have a gun. that's not the issue right here. the issue is that we have to start dealing with people with mental health issues. i have worked in a
their leaders in washington and, worse, they think those leaders are now hurting the economy. as president obama prepares to be sworn in for a second term our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows a lagging economy and partisan battles are sa sapping the public confidence replacing the buoyant mood of four years ago with more pessimism now about the future of the country even as the economy slowly recovers. the president remains personally in a strong political position. his job approval rating is at a steady 52% about where it was last month and a higher rating than he has had through most of his first term. while the public likes the president personally a full 74% have responded and told us they like obama, he still hasn't won them over on his policies. and on his policy goals. the public is split. 49% disapproving of his overall policy goals. 47% approving. the president does get his best marks for being easy going and likeable having the ability to handle a crisis and understanding average people but he has low marks on changing business as usual in washington. working effectively w
economy hostage. if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase and meeting the existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. here we are as i said three days before inauguration and it looks like another fight that the republicans are not prepared to it seems to follow through on despite the threats. >> zachary and i were having a conversation in the green room and i said i don't understand the meaning of a second inauguration for the president. i get it now. the reason we need another inauguration is apparently one party doesn't understand we had an election in november and they lost. which means that you move on and you let the president be the president of the united states. these guys still want to fight the old battles of 2012. >> but they're giving this extension now. >> a three-month extension. the white house should tell them to go shove it. you can't run a government three months at a time. you have to have a long-term planning. bad for the markets. bad for the country. bad for the economy. let's make clear, definitive decisions. you lost. let's come together and co
and will likely hear tomorrow. >> the more things hope and change, the more they stay the same. >> our economy is badly weakened and health care is too costly and schools fail to many. these are the indications of crisis. a nagging fear that america's decline is inevitable and the next generation must lower its sights. >> the speech he could give word for word again right now because so little has changed. in that speech he talks about wanting to end two wars, too many people are out of work, reaching out to the muslim world, reforming our schools. there are all kinds of redundancies he can thought go back to. >> supporters including his most ardent factor, hold the view the second address will be fundamentally different from the first address, not because he is hemmed if by similarities between today and four januaries ago but because the nation is in a fundamentally different place. >> this economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month and a lot of folks wondered whether we were headed for another great depression. do you hear me? this is what he faced on day one as president. >> as you know, he t
on the economy or jobs. we have been very reactive to what is happening in the headlines, not atippal for a second president. but it is the soft under belly of the obama presidency. at then of the second sterl, if this chidoesn't turn around and unemploint ployment doesn't come down, the obama agenda will be a failure. they are making a huge mistake, trying to beat up on rich people, businesses and small businesses and raise taxes. the result of the policies, eric, is that unemployment will continue to stay high and poverty rates will continue to skyrocket. when you beat up on the rich, you create more poor and you make your budget problem worse because there are more people on welfare than there were before president obama came to office. >> what happened if there were more people on welfare and if the unemployment rate doesn't go down? >> that has to be the primary focus needs to be. there are two major challenges right now. first, this economy is focused for liftoff. in the corporate world, we are at the highest profit levels we have been since world war two. their productivity is
house has been busy focusing on the gun control laws they haven't been busy working on the economy. they have also been busy demonizing their opponent. take a listen to president obama and his tone today at the press conference on gun control. >> this will be difficult. they will warn of ta tyrannical all-assault on liberty. not because it's true but they want to gin up fear for higher ratings or revenue for themselves. make sure nothing changes whatsoever. >> andrea: all right. so that was a little tasteless at a press conference like that. the economy is hurting. i want to read a couple of headlines on the economy to give you pause while the fun debate is going on. one, ranks of working poor is increasing. workers are raiding the funds to pay the bills. thaw may downgrade the united states. greg, does he not want to deal with this? >> greg: this is a real issue. this speaks to two different cultures in the united states. it's a prescription of xanax. you can have your gun, protection and security. lefties like john stewart paint gun owners as paranoid, the same time on sunday tha
the president's tactics those of a socialist who wanted to bring down the american economy? >> i think they would, and i appreciate your bringing the economy into it. the president did that yesterday. the more we talk about the debt ceiling after obsessing over the fiscal cliff, the more i look at the whole thing as a massive dangling the key or, you know, don't look over here at the real economy, which is where people would really like policymakers to be dealing, but look at this so-called fiscal crisis which doesn't even exist. the president very clearly, and i thought helpfully, spelled out the numbers yesterday and actually to get from where we are, given the spending cuts and tax increases that we've implemented so far, to where we need to be to stabilize the debt, is not that heavy a lift if we had a functional politics that was actually paying attention to what needs to be done instead of creating these ridiculous self-inflicted skirmishes and wounds. as you have correctly pointed out, you have even got conservatives spokespeople saying, look, this isn't going to happen, you're
invests to see our economy grow. the one silver bullet in deficit reduction is economic growth. we need to get out of this circle we're in right now and start talking about growth. how we start moving the economy forward because we'll never get out of the hole otherwise. melissa: stephen, that is a great point. do you move the economy forward and grow by raising taxes, do you think. >> president obama at one point believed we do not. he argued in twine and 2010 you would hurt economic growth if you raised taxes at time the economy was struggling. that is what he argued at time. melissa: what do you think, steven. raising taxes grows the economy or -- >> no, it does not grow the economy. we have to be serious how much the president contributed to overall debt picture. $6 trillion since he came to office. nearly $20,000 per united states citizen has been added since president obama came into office. so just silly to argue he hasn't contributed. melissa: blame game gets us nowhere because everybody contributed to it. god it is a mess and we have to fix it. when you hear people like nancy p
in part, difference to the sluggish economy and the challenges that the nation faces and the crowds will be smaller. george h.w. bush and george w. bush won't be here. there have been pres debts where presidents in the past haven't made it. george h.w. bush just got out hospital, which is why they won't be here. mitt romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with pers
administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, that we may very well be able to meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over ten years, and in the long-term deficit and put us on that path. but i didn't come here to talk about any of those important subjects today because, as important as they all are, today we have a
is up 5,550 points since then, just shy of the 14,000 mark. the economy is growing. instead of contracting. in the first quarter of 2009, the gdp contracted 5.3%. it grew 3.1% when the last time it was officially measured. though remains below where it was before the great recession, consumer confidence has nearly doubled. and a larger percentage of americans, 41%, according to our last poll, believe the country is headed in the right direction, up from 26% in january, 2009. on the other hand, there is plenty of data to support the idea that the drink country is not better off than it was four years ago. and that the struggling economy continues to take a toll on families. median household income is lower than it was in 2009. and 46 million americans live below the poverty line. several million more than four years ago. the federal public debt has increased from 10.6 trillion in january 2009 to 16.4 trillion now. then there's the big number that's exactly the same as it was four years ago. the unemployment rate. 7.8%. though it's down from, of course, a high of 10% in octobe
countries. why this site specifically? it is about gas and oil, that is the backbone of the economy and of course that is of great interest for the europeans who import from algeria. melissa: why attack in algeria for what is happening in molly? you can see they are neighbors, but why would this be the best way to make a statement, do you think? >> algeria has opened its airspace between friends in the north and the train into mali. it aided france in attacking al qaeda in mali. this is a lesson, a revenge against algeria to stop them from along the french across into mali. melissa: what is our role, what is the proper response for us? there are americans involved among the hostages, we have a drone overhead but it is limited given the algerian military is on-site. what can america do and what should we do? >> that is things we cannot talk about what the government will not talk about. obviously a special mission is being prepared that would emerge if they're executed, but let's be clear, the lead is the algerians. they are on the ground surrounding the flight. some hostages have be
time, their workers but that comes with a cost to the whole economy, making it less dynamic, less easy for businesses to hire more workers and at a time when we have 8% unemployment, that's not something that a lot of businesses can afford. >> now, a lot of those same union leaders say, you get what you pay for, and there are offering cut raitt salaries to workers who might appreciate the jobs, but in the end, aren't going to be very happy in those jobs. what do you think? >> i think overall people are gibbing to see that unions are out to help union worker but very often at the expense of nonunion works and that's where we're getting in trouble. the american public at large is overwhelmingly moving sort of -- public support is moving against unions, gallup found that 42% would like to see unions be less influential. they feel at if there are negotiations going on for union workers but they come at a cost for all workers, creating less opportunity for all workers and for the economy at large. what is the message. you say lab you wins every time. unions say, cheaper labor has a cos
, it didn't happen in one fell through to get our economy in great shape and move towards a balanced budget. it started out for three phases. started off with president bush's actions. first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office in the action the president took in 94 and 97. well, we think there is a third phase here they consider country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to gdp, deficit to gdp down around 3%, which is all economists are training center greer that areas we can begin to cruise the country and as my grandfather used to say that the grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, we may very well be able to meet the goal we set out to do, which is to have roughly $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and put us on that past. i didn't come here to talk about any of this important subjects today because as important as they all are today we have a mortgage and indie media call and that is how to do with the epidemic of gun violence in america. the one of the statist

[ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? >> john: before we could even shake off our collective fiscal cliff fatigue it's now back to the doldrums of the debt ceiling debate, my friends. yes, unfortunately if you prefer your doomsday scenarios few and far between then washington, d.c. is no place for you. the newest wound that republicans in congress are considering inflicting upon ourselves and our fragile economy is defaulting on our financial obligations by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually p

're threatening to tank the united states economy. again, the debt ceiling, it is really important that people understand, this is not about expanding your capacity to start new government programs. this is paying for bill that is are already due and owing so not paying it would be like, tamron, you and i buying stuff on the credit card and then deciding after we bought that stuff we are not going to pay for it. if the united states does that, it will tank our credit rating and economy and make any discussion of what would happen going over the fiscal cliff look like child's play. that's why the president said, look, he is not going to allow the american economy to be held hostage in that way. he is absolutely prepared to continue to negotiate ways to reduce our budget deficit and that's exactly what we should be doing but we shouldn't be doing it under the threat, the republican threat, of tanking the economy by undermining the full faith and credit of the united states government. we have never done that in the history of this republic and we shouldn't start doing it now. >> all right. congr

can that continue? >> slightly lower, down at 180. people think it will be bad for the economy. risk assets and things like equities did to get sold. the quality still is the u.s. treasury, the u.s. government. rates fall. that is one side of it. the big question is, where is elsewhere? that will be the big question. i think just a matter of time if we do get to this point, deficits are so large, at some point you'll have to pay the price at higher borrowing costs. at some point, that will be the ultimate outcome. dagen: for does that mean? you manage municipal bonds if the democrats have their way in raising taxes even more, that is good for muni bonds? >> the day after the election, we had a tremendous rally. the perception was taxes may go off. we have to deal right new year's eve. i talked to more people of the last few days who opened that first paycheck and their reaction was, boy, that tax fight was pretty big. that is the fact in front of us. i think it is likely that president obama will, as he has in the past, copy the value of deductions. i think it will be difficult to ul
be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful with some of the nuts you just heard from if he spent more quality time with them. >> you and your staff are too insular, that you don't socialize enough. >> this, of course, is one of the great myths of governing, that intractable problems, political problems, can somehow be solved over a card game and a couple of drinks. that has never, ever been the case nor will it ever be the case. >> i like speaker boehner personally. and you know, when we went out and played golf we had a great time. but that didn't get a deal done in 2011. >> the president actually had to remind the media that congressional behavior is the result of democracy. >> now if the american people feel strongly about these issues and they push hard and they reward, or don't reward members of congress with their votes, if -- you know if -- if they reject sort of uncompromising positions or s
years since the economy collapsed most traditional americans have been focused on the immediate and urgent children is the economy, unemployment. am i going to lose my job is my house under water either figuratively with my mortgage or literally with hurricane sandy. >> liberal americans are focused in on that too. >> when most traditional americans are focused on their jobs, their families, their lives, the bigger economic picture. >> bill: you are wrong about that because they have the same economic concerns but yet same to harness their energy in the ideology. >> here is the difference. the left wing focuses 24/7. they never rest on mission of secular progress transformation whether it's america or europe. >> bill: i agree with that. >> they never rest. traditional americans have lives, they have jobs. >> wait a second. >> they are less focused on the cultural side of things than they are about community. >> liberals don't have jobs. you are talking as if tradition is is opposition to liberalism as if you are a liberal therefore you don't respect or honor tradition. that's ab
and maybe win some election. and two, perhaps pushing wound after wound on the economy is really not what folks sent us here to do. >> and ryan, the funny thing about this, this can end up being perceived as some sort of republican cave when they never should have taken a party position against raising the debt ceiling in the first place. so that doing the rational thing could actually simply look rational when they chose to do it. >> right, exactly. they -- if they had never made a big deal about this to begin with then they wouldn't be in this situation. now, obama kind of aided and abetted them because he wanted it to be the debt ceiling leverage that he kind of wanted this grand bargain in 2011. that never happened. since then, he has been consistent saying i am not going to mess around with the debt ceiling anymore. and good for him on that, you're right. as newt gingrich said, wisely and moderately and reasonably, he said don't pick this fight because you're going to lose it. don't create a national crisis around this that will only wind up with you caving. so just do it quietly, ea
